Every time I see you, I feel nostalgia, nostalgia for all those times I cried for you, for all those times I lost my sleep dreaming that I had lost you when I thought I had you. I feel nostalgia for all what we could have been.
It is like if all the feelings were still alive, buried in a chest someplace dark and scary where not even the bravest pirates are willing to go.
The person you used to be doesn’t exist anymore, the person I used to be is gone as well. But still, after all these years, every time I see you, your smile, your eyes, throw a glint towards those feelings buried in that dark place. It’s sad to think that no pirate will ever recover that chest.
I don’t know, maybe we are the two extremes of the red string of destiny, do you know the story? In the ancient Asia they have this tale about love, that says:
There above, in the moon, lives an elderly man, that awakens every night and contemplates all the souls on earth, and ties with a red string, by their pinky, all those he thinks must remain together.
The thing is, life is not linear, it has its ups and downs, its comes and goes, still, finding that love at the other extreme of the string is inevitable, it’s our destiny, but most of the times we do so when we less expect it, maybe it is not the right time, maybe we are with someone else.
And even though we have the perfect timing, the perfect momentum, we will find a way to lose it over and over, but that love will com back every single time, no matter what the circumstances.
They also say we have a second love in our lives, with which we can maintain a healthy relationship, with an understanding of each other that goes beyond everything, one that will heal all our wounds, one we will spend the rest of our lives with.
But here is the thing, we will never have that passion, that fire, that love madness in our lives, and we will never be able to keep it out of our minds, not even for a day. Only those brave enough will stand for the final prize, a heart full of scars and no regrets.
